Best humored automotive company CEO :LOL:

Hah Musk deleted the tweet for some reason. Here's the image he posted along with caption "Art in Motion"

The tweet got me curious so I googled around and it seems that the banana taped to Cybertruck image was poking fun at an art piece titled "The Comedian" by prankster-artist Maurizio Cattelan. That "art piece" was just a banana duct-taped to a wall. And it sold for $120k!!

:ROFLMAO: The man's definitely got a sense of humor. I know there's times when his tweets have gotten him in trouble but it's refreshing to see a CEO of a huge company interacting so directly with owners and enthusiasts, and not being so formal like most executives at major companies.

I like the old style trailer hitch on the back of the thing.

Art and technology mixing up over stainless steel brutalism.

I thought it was in reference to Eddie Murphy's quote "Ain't gonna be falling for no banana in my tailpipe." No tailpipe so they had to tape the banana on. But the art reference works too.

Me too. No tail pipe. No fooling for the banana in the tail pipe trick. Lol.

Since the Art piece came out, I’ve done a few of those guerilla Art masterpieces myself but the Eddie Murphy quote shows it actually has more meaning on the back of a CyberTruck.
